Abstract:

Culture and currency explain many differences between domestic and international business and financial operations. Courses in international management and finance frequently focus on the currency issues; however, they should include consideration of related cultural differences as well. We describe a classroom exercise that introduces students to the variety and discomfort of cultural differences and provides a context for discussing the influence of culture on a firm's managerial and financial operations.
